Genealogy Journal - 03/24/09

After reading email and blogs, posted Tombstone Tuesday - Elizabeth (Keyes) Hildreth (1759-1793) but had to find the inscription on the stone in my notes somewhere on my computer. Messed around on Twitter and Facebook, got cleaned up, worked a bit on the FamilySearch DevCon page watching presentations, then posted Lancaster PA Graveyard Rabbit on TV! Back to the FSDC, posted 2009 FamilySearch Developer's Conference Recordings. Had lunch, read email, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Had to go out to the bank for awhile. Came back and looked for the digital camera - it's lost! It was right here on Sunday, and I don't remember taking it anywhere or moving it. Linda swears she didn't touch it. It walked off?

At 2:30 p.m., I started working in the Ancestry.com City Directories for the 1940's. They seem all messed up. I wrote down some notes, took some screen shots, and then posted 1941-1948 San Diego City Directories on Ancestry.com are incomplete. I was really POed, and still am! At 5 p.m., we left to go out to dinner with our neighbors - Olive Garden for spaghetti and meatballs for me. We were home by 7 p.m.

Back at it, I read email, blogs, Twitter and Facebook before settling in to start my online Search for the parents of Devier J. Lamphier alias Smith. I filled out my Research Summary for Devier to show what I already have. I found, copied and edited the list I made last year for Traditional and Online Searches. Had to help Linda pack her car for her trip tomorrow, but came back to fill out more of the Research Summary. Now for the Research Plan for the parents of Devier Lamphier alias Smith. At 10, I stopped, read everything once more, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on T/FB, 3.5 hours researching and writing blog posts, 1.0 hour working in Ancestry's city directories, and 2.5 hours on the Devier Lamphier alias Smith research summary and plan.
